Civil Engineering Toolbox is a revolutionary way to perform simple and some not-so-simple, structural engineering calculations using iPad. This app is not about solving complex math but rather about understanding and conceptually decoupling the fundamental steps of structural engineering:
(a) define the structural system,
(b) define the loading patterns acting on the structure,
(c) select material properties from a database,
(d) select sections from a database,
(e) check the developed stresses, the displacements and the associated cost.
In case it is needed, a photo can be captured on site and the entire calculation package can be sent to the office computer by e-mail together with the exact GPS location of the site.
With Civil Engineering Toolbox, the engineer can perform the following tasks:
